The Red Sox have many names that will forever resonate throughout New England: Williams, Yastrzemski, Rice, Garciaparra and Martinez are just a few that fans will always associate with a career full of highlights.
Not everyone can be a legend, though.
Some players have a couple memorable moments, but as a whole, their careers do not stand out in any profound way. They have all blended into one unit: the “That Guys.”
Rather than allow these players to go unrecognized, every week I am going to take a look at the Red Sox career of one of the “That Guys.” I’ll look at what defined his tenure in Boston, what he actually accomplished on the field and what he went on to do after leaving.
This week’s subject: the original portly fan favorite who wore jersey No. 34, Rich “El Guapo” Garces.
